Kapali Kovil Utsavam - Adhigara Nandhi

The song goes ...

KaaNa kaN kOdi vendum, adhigara nandhi sevai thanai..

10 million eyes to view the adhigara Nandhi (commanding bull)

The way they carry Lord Kapalishwarar on the silver bull, the way they sway it to the rythmic drum beats, it is a sight to watch.

It has been 17 years since I got to see this! What with coming to the USA and the India trips always aligning to summer or winter, you never get to go there during Navrathri time (september) or Utsavam time (April). This trip was indeed a godsend.

My tired father and grandparents thanked me so many times for bringing the utsavam to them with the videos and photos.




Here are some photo highlights as well.



















There are many of you out there in the same boat. Hope you enjoyed the video and photos.

Another day, another vahanam..

Gosh, thanks! For a large part of my life, living stone's throw from Kapali Kovil, I would jostle the mad rush purely out of faith and adrenalin... don't even have photos from those days. Thanks for the video and photos! Remember going with my grandpa for every other pradosham, and even joining in the aruvathi moovar festivities... good old days!
...was googling for Apple Tree Complex, and what do you know?! landed here :)
